Building Ideals – MAS Summit 2014

At the 2014 Municipal Arts Society Summit for New York City, JDS Principal Simon Koster presents a Smart Talk on the ideals that drive the development company’s signature approach to design and construction. Koster acknowledges that in cities like New York, constraints of time, money, and building codes give developers myriad reasons to compromise their design ideals. Koster argues that in contrast, constraints can actually push the building industry to flourish if building ideals remain at the forefront of the development process.
